3. Use Galaxy Note 5 Camera Auto HDR

The HDR mode on your Galaxy Note5 simultaneously captures fine details in both shadows and highlights, creating shots that are high contrast, saturated and sharp. You can enable the setting on in the camera's settings screen.  We recommend leaving "auto HDR" on in most situations.

4. Use Selfie Mode

Using Selfie mode, you can take self-portraits with the front camera. Open the Camera app and switch to the front facing camera. When you're ready for your selfie, simply touch the heart rate sensor located at the back of your phone, below the main camera, to capture the photo.
